Winemaker's Dinner with Seebass Winery

  • Sonoma Wine Shop & La Bodega

Our chef Rick Vargas has created a spectacular 6 course meal, and then paired it with Seebass Wines.  There is so much to appreciate and enjoy - using local organic eggs, wild mushrooms from California; imported French truffles; wild alaskan salmon. And there will be more with Rick's mixed grill, and finished with Meekk's famous dessert platter.

SWS Members pay just $60 for dinner and just $20 more for the wine pairing flight.  Public is invited too - $75 for dinner plus $30 for the wine pairing. (Tax and Tip is not included)

Scott Willoughby of Seebass will be joining us this evening, discussing his vineyards and their passion for great wine.  Scott is growing fantastic fruit in Mendocino and has teamed up with HDV winery in Napa (managed by Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti fame) . This combination produces fantastic wines year after year.  Together a truly balanced approach is found - California fruit with French deft touch in winemaking.

Give 2 Hands 2 Nepal- Dual Fundraisers - Namaste!

Using 2 hands makes the work go faster. 2 hands pressed together means Namaste in Nepal.

Our good friends from Nepal are working hard AND joining hands together to help villagers back home.  Ang Sherpa, our Sonoma Team Leader, is organizing our fundraiser in Sonoma.  Chhiring Sherpa & Nima Sherpa of The Himalayan Sherpa Kitchen of St. Helena and the Himalayan Sherpa Club of Sonoma are helping with appetizers and volunteers.

Ang Sherpa - Sonoma Team Leader

Rajesh Moktan, owner of Himalayan Tandoori & Curry in Sebastopol, is supporting our club with wonderful food from his home country.  Dr. Lucia Cargill of AOMAA (American Overseas Medical Aid Association) is supporting Rajesh through their 501c3 Charity.


Your Hosts Meekk & Bryan own Sonoma Wine Shop & La Bodega in both Sonoma & Sebastopol

Local owners Meekk & Bryan support the efforts of the Nepalese to rebuild their country.


100% of all proceeds will go into these remote villages who desperately are recovering from massive earthquakes.  Over 1,000,000 people lost their homes and need our help now.   Sindhupalchowk is the area chosen by Rajesh - over 350,000 people normally live there in many small villages.  It was very hard hit and needs outside help. 

Khumbu is the Mt. Everest district supported by Ang Sherpa.  The several small villages are home to the Sherpa people, and a popular tourist region. Many villages were hit hard by the quake and are struggling to stabilize  before winter.


Buy your tickets at Eventbrite. Come to the event to enjoy traditional foods, sparkling wine and a great fundraiser . Help lend 2 hands!

Break The Fast at Dinner

Your wine club is adding some great choices onto our regular 3 course this weekend.  We have several great additions as well as a full regular menu.

Yom Kippur is acknowledged with a day of fasting in Jewish tradition.  A 'day' starts when the sun goes down, and ends the next day - when the sun does down.  One neither eats or drinks.  Seudah Mafseket is the meal one eats prior to fasting - a meal with less spice so one isn't thirsty.  We will serve the 3 course starting very early Friday Oct 3rd so the meal can finish before sundown.

Breaking the fast, we have a different meal planned - and one starts eating AFTER sundown.  And spicy is good - hence the Moroccan chicken.

Here are our 2 menus planned for this weekend starting early Friday. Lots of great choices  - still just $20 for members!
